You know when you're getting baby ready to nurse, and you tuck their lower arm kinda behind you and youre trying to get the latch and they're fussing, and then somehow they pinch the soft skin on the back of your arm, REALLY hard!!!!! THAT!

And also, you know when they're getting to be not-so-newborn and they're curious, and something catches their attention while feeding so they decide to turn their head WITHOUT letting go of your nipple first sothey kinda pop off with a loud and painful suck? THAT TOO!!!

And finally, again with the fussing, and they grip your hair in their tiny fist SO tight you simply cannot prise their fingers open, and anyattempt to do so results in them screaming bloody murder? And it's never a thick handful of hair its always a few of the hairs from the side of your face where its super sensitive and painful? THAT!!!

Motherhood hurts sometimes!

And yea he gums my nipple and he's done the head turn a few times and bit my nipple! OW! He's not to bad about hair pulling but the pinching scratching and nipple owies I totally relate too!!!!
So painful...yet so worth it!

Sharp nails no matter what I do!!! The nurses recommended at the hospital NOT to put on mittens, since they're learning and exploring while feeding...

Pippa clutches my breasts when she nurses, and her nails scratch me. She also tries to watch the TV and will twist around with my nipple still in her mouth.

ever have them latch in the wrong spot? That gentle newborn suction makes you yelp when it's not on the nipple.

I've been pinched a number of times! It always surprises me how strong a little baby can be.

I'll put up with anything he throws at me as long as he doesn't do what Harper used to do. She would pinch under my arm and my chest so hard she left bruises. And she liked to hit the same spot over and over again. She also liked to pinch necks. She is a very tactile kid. She still has to rub my arm when she goes to sleep.

No pinching so far, but i ge tthe scratching and while she is nursing, she bites my nipple right before she farts or poops. DH just laughs but man does it hurt. she also sleeps through most of her feedings but if i am tryiung to keep her eating she will stretch and arch her back while still latched. Pulls my breast like crazy.
